Stream thinks im not at home

Stream thinks im not at home

So after reading threads, one possible issue is that the s/n of the modem doesn't match what is in my account. I went and checked and sure enough it is different. it looks like my account is listing a mac address instead of the s/n. on top of that, the mac address is incorrect. it doesn't match either of the lan/or wireless mac addresses shown on the modem page. how do i get this corrected?

What they list as Serial # is the mac address. If its not your modem's mac address, call support and notify them.

There shoould be a sticker on your modem with mac addresses on it. The one that needs to match your serial number listed on your My Devices page is the EMAC or CMAC not your LAN or wireless.
